    Default Why Can't I Taste My Juice Anymore?

    I have had a problem lately where I feel like I just cannot taste the flavor of my juice much anymore. Even if I fill up a brand new carto using a spin bag and all, even let it set overnight and top it off nice and full but not flooded, I only taste a fairly decent flavor for the first few toots then it's gone. Like I am vaping water. It can also be different flavors that are new or older and it doesn't matter. It also doesn't matter what device I am on. Even on VV I cannot dial it in. It's either nothing or a burnt taste. And on my slims it is pretty much nothing. I even incorporate different brand carto's. DC, SC, all different ohms. Tank or no tank. What could I be doing wrong, or are my taste buds getting numb? I mainly use a 24mg 50/50 juice from The Vapor Room for 4 months now and never had this problem til recently. I am going through juice like nuts cause I feel like the only good flavor I get is from a few fresh drips in to the battery end of the carto. But that lasts literally only for a few puffs. Please help, it is driving me nuts!

    I've had that happen with more 'delicate', lighter flavors like fruit flavors at high voltage. Sometimes it still just happens, like when I first started vaping and I couldn't taste anything. When it happens I switch to a plain mint or vape some unflavored.

    Taste bud crisis. It happens. Mostly when new to vaping and taste buds are returning to normal but sometimes from overdoing it. There's a lot of suggestions....vaping unflavored...vaping some menthol for a day or two to reset your palate. Drink lots of water and scrape your tongue when you brush. It will pass in a day or so.

    I do have some Menthol, I will try that. I always scrape the ol' tongue. I am just surprised that it would happen this far in (4 months). I do wonder if it could have anything to do with some new meds I am on? But then, it seems like I taste food normally.

    I'm going through the same ordeal right now. It's been 14 months since I started vaping(no analogs). The first time it happened was at about 3 months. Now all of a sudden it's happened twice this month. As frustrating as it can be, I just vape thru it(2 to 3 days). I'm thinking maybe I burned out my taste buds with the 1.5ohm atty. I will refrain myself from it for a while and see. The only flavors I can taste at all is menthol and black pepper.

    Good Luck!

    I got a few with my LT and tried em before my taste issues and didn't seem to care for the taste. I know it takes awhile to break them in, but couldn't get myself to stick it out. Of course too I am unseasoned in the dripping area, and kept flooding or under filling receiving a burnt taste. I was confused too on how long then I would be able to vape on a few drops or whatever. I think it was easier for me to fall back on what I had been doing which was carto's. But I know a ton of people will say that once you drip you will not want anything else. Although, the vendors like to confuse even more sometimes by promoting the carto's! Geez. I am not against it, and will probably go pull one out now! Although any advice you may have for someone who's for sure a "noob" in the drip department would be much appreciated!

    Ah, I'm less than a month in so my taste buds are still recovering, but I know what you're talking about. When I wake up in the morning, I usually refrain from vaping (would've NEVER been able to do that with the stinkies) because until I shower, brush my teeth and eat breakfast (which I think I have identified as the catalyst) it's all I can do to taste my juice, no matter what it is. I think eating kind of 'jump starts' my taste buds and after that I can taste any and everything but before that, forget about it. Right now the only juice (joose, hehehehe) that seems to be immune to this is KBV's Pineapple Juice. I think they have some sort of Koolada thing going on with that juice, and I can taste it no matter what. It's been my morning juice for a few days now.

    If you are not getting what you want from cartos, I would suggest trying it again! It finally worked for me even though I had tried it before and it wasn't all that great. Optimo, and Jplanet helped me out when making the switch. Maybe it is time?!

    I will work with you! What kind of attys do you have? Anymore info about your set-up will help, including the juices you are using!

    p.s. I am no atty guru at all, but I know some members that are, so if I can't answer your question, we will find the answer together...okay?
